No matter how much we take care of our skin, there's one area we all seem to forget: The neck. This delicate area is one of the first places on our body to reveal signs of aging because the skin of the neck is sensitive and thin compared to other parts of the body. That’s why let’s work on getting rid of that darkened skin and those wrinkles so that the skin on our neck doesn’t look aged.
Read below to know the 8 best neck beauty tips that can help keep the neck skin clean and glowing.
Tip #1: The neck skin is very thin and delicate, that’s why it is so important to add a proper neck massage in the beauty regimen. But, never massage the neck in circular motions or from top to bottom, instead massage the skin of the neck by moving both palms from lower to upper region in vertical movements.
Tip #2: Oils help the neck skin to rejuvenate. Choose the oils which are not extremely heavy such as olive oil, sweet almond oil, chamomile oil, eucalyptus oil, and rose oil. Coconut oil is heavy oil but it can be used in very little amounts or can be mixed with a little water.
Tip #3: Do not over massage the neck. A neck massage should last from 10-15 minutes maximum with a possible break of one or two minutes in between. Over massaging can strain the neck skin.
Tip #4: Masks and packs also work wonders for the neck skin just like the skin of the face. Fruit masks like apple, ripe banana, avocado, and plums can do wonders and can give the best results.
Tip #5: Exfoliation of the neck skin is important too. However, use only mild exfoliators like scrub made of ground almonds and milk. This is one of the best neck cleaning routines that will offer great results.
Tip #6: Face wash, toner, and a vitamin E enriched moisturizing skin cream are great for the skin of the neck too.
Tip #7: Use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or above on the neck and face as well.
Tip #8: Remember to remove makeup from the neck because it is no different than the face. It also contains pores that can be blocked and result in dull and sagging skin.
